You are more than welcome to use any of the published resources at our website for educational purposes.  Our GHS Answers Center has a wealth of information that you can use to distill down the HCS, its impact post GHS adoption (aka HCS2012)  and the basics of Safety Data Sheets and the difference between a MSDS and SDS .  Good luck!

Hi All,


I am going to be a merit badge counsellor for the BSA chemistry merit badge and the first thing I noticed was the first requirement dealt with MSDS.


I am asking two questions here.  First, has anyone on this list created post Hazcom 2012 educational activities like the ones in requirement number 1 that reflect SDS and the GHS?  And if so, would they be willing to share them, and potentially allow BSA to adopt/modify them?  My second question, is since I have your attention, does anyone have any comments from the perspective of chemical health and safety on the remaining activities?  


Please understand I am in the middle of the normal juggle act and will tackle this project in about two weeks, and am seeking input now, before I do anything, as my time is very limited.  I do appreciate any thoughts or assistance.


Cheers and Thanks,

Bob Belford
